Odessa and Midland, TX Nov 18-21, 2010


These contraptions started to sprout along the road on our short drive from Pecos to Odessa/Midland area.  Our home while we are here is the Midessa Oil Patch RV Park is located midway between each.


George, Barbara and infant son George W. Bush lived here in his home for about one year.


Just had to see Stonehenge again. The above photo was taken on the campus of the University of Texas of the Permian Basin.

The above photo is from the real Stonehenge in England (taken 7/13/09).

I finally gave in and let Bob pick out his new 32” LED TV to replace the 27” one in the RV.


Here is the new one working, Bob wanted to make sure we could get it hooked up and it worked with the Directv.


Bob did some framing behind the TV and the new swivel mount works great.  We just now have to come up with a way to use bungees to secure the TV when we travel.  We LOVE the quality of the picture even though we do not have any HDTV channels yet.

I am standing on the front porch of the George Bush family home in Midland.



The Odessa Meteor Crater is slowly filling itself in. 


I am standing at the current bottom of this crater.  (The salmon color on the above map.)


Tomorrow we are headed to Fredericksburg for Thanksgiving week.

Please keep my sister in your prayers, she starts chemotherapy tomorrow.

All prayers gratefully accepted. I pray for those who pray for me, also need courage and patience. Thanks to all.

We will most certainly keep your sister in our prayers!

Roger's favorite TV show (one of mine, too) is Friday Night Lights, which supposedly was based on an Odessa high school football team.

The Bush family homes were interesting, too, especially that tiny first one!
